Significant Changes To Raw And Smackdown Live Implemented

Significant changes were made to Raw and Smackdown Live this week.

Both pre-shows have been cut from 30 minutes to 10 minutes and now only feature Booker T and Charly Caruso. In addition, they’ve begun airing “Previously on” segments that recap the week prior to catch up viewers on storyline developments.

While the plan is for Booker and Charly to do the shows, Renee Young was alongside Book on this week's Smackdown Pre-Show. Charly was with him last night on the Raw Pre-Show.

We confirmed earlier today that Jerry Lawler’s on-air role in WWE has been scaled back again, as he’ll host special events — such as the Hall of Fame induction ceremony — but will no longer appear on pre-shows.

This week’s Smackdown Pre-Show is embedded above. Hurry, it’s almost over!
